This has been one of the most thrilling rides of my life. The Shanghai Maglev is the fastest land vehicle on earth in regular commercial operation. In the video to the right, you can see its speed gauge showing 430km/h which is about 270mph. The train shudders slightly at this speed but is overall incredibly smooth. The 30km/20 mile run takes about 7 minutes. It isn’t a conventional train, as it levitates above its track using magnets.
This is what I mean when I say you gotta do things in life and be spontaneous. Late night adventure some friends and I took. Get out and do stuff! Have stories to tell. Make an adventure out of your life! Btw you can’t hear trains coming on tracks so be careful, we almost died out here trying to take this pic.
